Paint correction is a term specifically used when restoring the paint problem, instead of just covering it up or repainting it. Professional car detailers will make sure a car is thoroughly washed and decontaminated before they perform a paint correction to be sure any loose dirt or debris isn’t interfering with the restoration process. Once a vehicle is free of contaminants, a detailer is ready to begin the paint correction process.

Car detailers will start the paint correction process by polishing the vehicle with multi-stage polishing machine process. Detailers will use a variety of different grade polishes to effectively correct paint and leave your vehicle looking like new. Professional car detailers will also use halogen or LED lamps designed to replicate the effect of direct sunlight on a vehicle to check the condition of paintwork and see how successfully any imperfections were removed. Some scratches are more stubborn than others, which require extra effort from detailers.

After the correction process is complete, panels of the vehicle are wiped down with isopropyl alcohol, which removes oils and reveals the vehicles true finish. This labor-intensive process is time-consuming, but can completely restore the appearance of a vehicle.
